General Information on Clomipramine

When and How to Take It

Some considerations for when and how to take clomipramine include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in capsule form. It is taken by mouth, usually one to three times a day.
     
  • You can take clomipramine with or without food, although it is best to take it with food when first starting or increasing your dose.
     
  • Clomipramine should be taken at the same time(s) each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Clomipramine will not work if you stop taking it.
     

Dosing Information

The dose of clomipramine your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may be taking.
     
As with any medication, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
